Ethical Hacking

Exposing vulnerabilities in your infrastructure and applications

Today, in the age of increasing cybercrime, every organization can become the victim of a targeted attack. By understanding how an attack might happen and what the damage could be, we enable organizations to defend themselves against cyberattacks.

Our ethical hackers are trained experts that validate the security of your infrastructure and applications from a malicious hacker’s point of view. They have learned how to think like malicious ‘black hat’ hackers and know the tools and techniques they are likely to use.

Depending on your organizations risks and security maturity, we execute any of the following attack simulations:

  • Penetration Testing
  • Phishing
  • Red Teaming

Penetration Testing

The objective of a penetration test is to find and priorities as many exploitable vulnerabilities as possible during a fixed time frame. This allows organizations to correctly prioritize the mitigation those weaknesses  that matter most to their business and reduce the likelihood and impact of becoming the victim of a real cyberattack.

A tailored testing methodology is applied for every type of penetration test:

  • Application Pentesting (Web App/Mobile/API)
  • Infrastructure Pentesting

Phishing Testing

Phishing is a form of Internet Fraud. It consists of scamming people by luring them to a fake website, which is a copy of the real website, in order to make them log in there – unsuspectingly – with their login name and password or their credit card number. Any valid credentials obtained by attackers can provide initial access to the company network.

The objective of a phishing test is to simulate a phishing attempt to validate and raise the awareness among your employees to make them less susceptible of a real phishing attack.

Red Teaming

Red teaming is an advanced version of ethical hacking. The objective is no longer to identify as many vulnerabilities as possible, but rather on validating if a certain attack objective (e.g. gaining access to a certain database,…) can be reached, using all possible means available.

Red teaming originated in the military and is based upon a simple concept. One group of security pros – a red team – attacks something, and an opposing group – the blue team – defends it. This is also the reason why it is only a useful test at mature companies as the organization needs to have a security monitoring team in place that is able to identify and defend against potential attackers.

Red teaming exercises are often effective in helping organizations increase their security since they impact both technological security measures as well as helping to overcome cultural biases and increase problem-solving capabilities within the organization.
